Just for fun, I thought I'd poke around the internet to see if there are any rooms available in Vancouver or Whistler for the Olympic games. After all, there are tickets available to some events.
Well, the good news is that there are rooms available. The bad news: Well, how would you feel about paying $830 a night to stay in a Best Western in Vancouver? The prices are even more obscene in Whistler, where rooms at respectable establishments are going for $1,100 a night or so.
The best bet to see the Games live, I think, is to visit a geneaologist and pray you can find a Canuckian in the family tree who is willing to clear away some beer bottles and let you bed down for the night.
